Iowa City locally-grown flowers {fresh off the farm}

Iowa’s growing conditions aren’t suited to natural year-round flower cultivation, but what does grow here grows beautifully!  This summer we’ve been pleased as punch to team up with local grower Ann Franzenburg of Pheasant Run Farm.  This is what we bought from Ann today:

a mixed bunch of celosia–a textural treat we look forward to every fall!

lush pink amaranthus–a statement flower if ever there was one!

lavender, pink, and white lisianthus–no commercially-grown lizzy can compare to the beauty of what we get from Ann!

If the “buy local” movement inspires you, next time you’re in feel free to ask what local products we have in stock.  We’re also looking to add some flowers from Kalona by the end of the week.
